In 2012, Norton Healthcare launched the first Cohort of the Norton Physician Leadership Academy, and in 2020 it became the Norton Provider Leadership Academy (NPLA). This Academy was created to provide clinicians the opportunity to increase their understanding of the business of medicine and to prepare providers for the changing face of medicine.
The Norton Provider Leadership Academy provides a highly interactive, solutions-based curriculum. Classes are designed to accommodate busy schedules and blend on-site, online and self-study modules based on current management and leadership principles.
The curriculum offers dedicated providers, who are interested in preparing for the future of health care, an opportunity to enhance their leadership competencies and skills. Offered in conjunction with the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL), the academy covers different topics in each course, including:
Continuing Education Credits
Sessions will provide AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) credits.
Master’s Degree Track
Complete all requirements for the ten on-site sessions as well as any other prerequisite courses required for entrance into a master’s degree program in medical management, health care quality and safety or business administration.
CPE track (physicians only): Complete the ten on-site courses and additional online self-study courses to prepare to sit for the Certifying Commission in Medical Management (CCMM) certification exam.
All courses completed in the CPE and master’s degree tracks require the participant to complete and pass a formal online examination.
Classes are in-person and are held approximately one Saturday a month and include on-site AAPL and Norton Healthcare instructor-led courses and speakers. Classes are not scheduled in July and December.
The Norton Provider Leadership Academy is taught by experienced instructors who incorporate a teaching style that engages and challenges participants. These individuals work with leading healthcare systems across the country enabling them to bring national insight to the Academy curriculum.
The Academy is currently open to physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants employed by Norton Medical Group or Norton Children’s Medical Group; and to physicians who provide facility-based services through exclusive contracts, such as anesthesia, emergency medicine and radiology.
